Chatting with Van Leeuwen Co-Founder Laura O’Neill for International Women’s Day

In honor of International Women's Day, we sat down with Laura O'Neill, cofounder of our favorite ice cream brand, Van Leeuwen. Covering everything to the importance of paid family leave to how you can help your favorite restaurants right now, the wide-ranging discussion was accompanied by a tasty pint of ice cream, delivered to all attendees in New York City.

Watch Laura break down all these topics and more in the video below. And if you're looking for more ways to support female entrepreneurs, make sure you head to Hudson Yards, where all month long you can show your receipt from a woman-owned business to have 10% donated to Girls Inc. of NYC.
